Neurotoxin 101 The Refinery Med Spa Georgetown, TX

You want to put what in my where?? It’s Botox, and we want to put it in your face.

What the heck is Botox anyway?

Botox/Dysport/Xeomin/Jeuveau are all different brands of Botulinum Toxin Type A (think Pepsi vs Coke). Botulinum Toxin Type A is a neurotoxin.

What is Neurotoxin? Infographic: 01- Botulinum Toxin Type A - Neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostiridium botulinum. 02- 'Miracle Poison' Can improve a wide variety of medical conditions: Strabismus, Ms, Torticollis, Blepharospasm, Tic disorders, Migraine, Tremor, Dysphagia, Stuttering, Parkinson's, Overactive Bladder, Excessive sweating, Cerebral Palsy. And of course... has amazing cosmetic effects.

How Does It Work?

  1. Wrinkles form in the skin from underlying muscles contracting
  2. Neurotoxin temporarily reduces the activity of the underlying muscles
  3. This decreases the appearance of lines/wrinkles that have already formed
  4. It also prevents new lines/wrinkles from forming
How does it work? 01 Repeated muscle contractions are one of the causes of wrinkles, 02 Botulinum toxin A temporarily reduces underlying muscle activity, 03 Extra credit: Blocks the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction.
